Managing post-stroke fatigue
Many people experience fatigue after a stroke or transient ischaemic attack (TIA or mini-stroke) – a tiredness that doesn’t always improve with rest.
Does variability of brain blood flow increase stroke risk in stroke survivors and after TIA?
This research is focused on assessing the relationship between the variability of the blood flow through the blood vessels supplying the brain, and the risk of stroke in patients who have already had a stroke or “mini-stroke” (TIA) in the past.
Transient ischaemic attack (TIA)
